Latest service status for testing at community testing centres/stations as at 10.30am
     A Government spokesman noted today (January 21) that the COVID-19 nucleic acid testing capacity is ample and sufficient to meet the demand of the cross-boundary passenger flow before and during the Lunar New Year. There are still about 77 000 and 100 000 testing places available for booking at community testing centres/stations (CTC/CTSs) across the city for today and tomorrow (January 22) respectively, as at 10.30am today.

     Abundant testing places are still available at multiple CTC/CTSs which are conveniently located in close proximity to MTR stations. Persons who wish to undergo COVID-19 nucleic acid testing can reserve a testing time slot online in advance and opt for those CTC/CTSs with fewer users for testing so as to save the waiting time.

     The spokesman also reminded members of the public that:
  • CTCs and CTSs will accord priority for service to persons with a booking. Those without a booking will inevitably need to wait longer;
  • CTCs and CTSs will normally be busier in the evening hours. Members of the public can choose to undergo testing during daytime;
  • If the testing places at a CTC or CTS are fully booked on a certain day, individuals without a booking will not be catered for and they will need to turn to other CTCs or CTSs for testing;
  • Persons who had made a reservation should arrive at the CTC/CTS on time according to the time slot they booked. Those who show up too late may need to wait for a longer time or will not be served; and
  • Persons travelling to the Mainland do not need to return to the CTC/CTSs specifically for collecting paper form reports. For the purpose of cross-boundary travel, the electronic reports issued by testing institutions and the self-paid nucleic acid testing electronic records available for download from the COVID-19 Electronic Testing Record System (www.evt.gov.hk/portal/en/) are also accepted for presentation to and checking by relevant staff at boundary control points.

     Members of the public may browse the following websites to keep abreast of the service status of CTC/CTSs:
     As at 10.30am today, there are still abundant testing places for today at the following CTC/CTSs that have fewer users. Citizens who need to undergo testing may turn to these testing centres and stations.
